Knightmare Pointless

Post by Eyeshield » Thu Sep 15, 2011 10:57 pm

I am going to be hosting a game of Knightmare Pointless sometime during October. I'll be posting the game here, as well as on the Raven Forum.

The first four contestants are all Raven Forum members - Ross "Raven's Eye" Thompson, Ben "Redthir" Fieldhouse, Greg "Mister Kennedy" Ford and Gemma "GeZ" Dwarwood. (All of them except Greg are members of this forum too!) One of them will earn the chance to win a genuine, official Knightmare badge in the super-exciting jackpot final!

I am currently garnering answers from some members of this forum, and if the game is well received by all, there may be the chance for others to sign up as contestants for future rounds!

Watch this space!

I am planning to start Knightmare Pointless on Monday or Tuesday this week (I'm hoping to get in a couple more sets of answers over the weekend) and I hope to get through the first round (i.e. up to the first elimination) before I go to Whitby for a week on Friday 30th September.

Welcome to the first ever game of Knightmare Pointless! We asked all our Knightmare-related questions to 8 people, and now it's up to our four fabulous contestants - Ross, Ben, Greg and Gez - to find the most obscure answers they can think of. One of them will earn the chance to find a Pointless answer in the jackpot final and win an ultra-cool, genuine, official Knightmare badge!

A couple of important points to bear in mind:
1. For the purposes of this, "character" means any role that's been confirmed as having been played by a credited Knightmare actor, except uncredited, unnamed individual creatures/monsters.
2. The unbroadcast pilot episodes (from 1986/7) and Knightmare VR (from 2004) are not taken into account for any question.

Right, let's play Knightmare Pointless!

ROUND 1

In the first round, each of you will give me two answers. Whoever has the highest score at the end of the round will be eliminated. If you give a wrong answer, you will score the maximum of 8 points.

We gave 8 people 100 seconds to name...

SPYGLASS SEQUENCE CHARACTERS

So that's any character who appeared in at least one spyglass sequence during Series 5-8. There are plenty of correct answers on this list - 19 in all! Remember, players, be as obscure as you can, and please make sure you've read and taken into account the official Knightmare Pointless parameters of what is meant by the term "character" at the beginning of this post!

So, Ross, what is your answer?

Ross says Heggatty. Let's see what that scores him...

Image

A lot of people seem to have remembered that one spyglass sequence Heggatty was in, near the beginning of the final episode of Series 6, perhaps because it was an unusual spyglass sequence in many ways. So, Ross, you score 5 points.

ROSS
Answer 1 - 5
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

Ben, what is your first answer?

Ben says Julius Scaramonger. Let's see what that scores him...

Greg says Lissard. Let's see what that scores him...

Image

Lissard appeared in almost (but not quite) all the spyglass sequences during Series 7 and 8. As you predicted, Greg, our amphibious friend earns you a hefty score of 7 points, although in a round that's been fairly high-scoring so far, this isn't exactly fatal... at least, not yet!

ROSS
Answer 1 - 5
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

BEN
Answer 1 - 6
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

GREG
Answer 1 - 7
Answer 2 - ?

Gez, what is your first answer?

I reckon I've managed to think of all 19... I bet there are at least a couple of pointless answers!

Gez says Stiletta. Let's see what that scores her...

Image

Stiletta never appeared in a spyglass sequence, although she was mentioned in a couple of Series 8 ones. Gez, I'm afraid you score the maximum of 8 points.

ROSS
Answer 1 - 5
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

BEN
Answer 1 - 6
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

GREG
Answer 1 - 7
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

GEZ
Answer 1 - 8
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

We're halfway through the round and there's not a great deal in it - 5, 6, 7, 8! I'm expecting Steps to turn up at any moment.

Now (as they say on TV) we're going to come back down the line, so Gez, it's your turn again. Please post your second answer.

Gez says Sidriss. Let's see what that scores her...

Image

Not a bad way to follow up a wrong answer, coming up with by far the best answer of the round so far! Sidriss appeared in one Series 8 spyglass sequence, although it has to be said that she wasn't quite herself at the time. Gez, you score 3 points, bringing your total to 11.

ROSS
Answer 1 - 5
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

BEN
Answer 1 - 6
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

GREG
Answer 1 - 7
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

GEZ
Answer 1 - 8
Answer 2 - 3
TOTAL - 11

Greg, it's your turn again. Our current high scorer is Gez on 11. If you score 3 or less, you're definitely through to the next round.
